A ‘Spirited’ Week Ahead!

‘Fall’ing for Fun

The PreK3 class took a moment this week to appreciate the best that Fall has to offer: a pile of freshly fallen leaves!

November’s Virtue & Spirit Day

Next Friday, November 4 will be November’s all-school virtue assembly lead by our Preschool classes. All students are invited to wear their red Spirit Shirt and casual bottoms to school!

Embers Friendship Tree

The trees outside my be bare, but inside Embers, our Friendship tree is in full bloom! Our Sparks have been adding leaves all month as they performed Acts of Friendship both at home and in school. It is a beautiful display celebrating a month of friendship!

Little Sparks This Wednesday!

Trunk or Treat Was Sweet!

Thank you to the Embers Parents Association for hosting a “Spook-tacular” Trunk or Treat event last Sunday. We had over 60 families turn out for an afternoon of music, laughter, and – candy! Congratulations to our winners and all participants for some fabulous trunk decorations!

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like…

Open House November 9

Our first Fall Open House was quite the success. We had several prospective families join us and we noticed a reoccurring theme – so many were invited to the open house by you! Thank you for reaching out and sharing your love of Embers with other parents. We will have our second Fall Open House in two weeks, on November 9, for anyone who was unable to attend this month.
